skin was nice and tight until I painted it -- help!

Recommended Posts

I sewed on the skin, fairly tight, but not super tight, as I felt that my super-tight skin caused the frame to bend on a previous attempt.  When complete there were a few small wrinkles that came right out with heat.  Then I applied my first coat of Rust-Oleum with about 15% thinning.  The next morning the skin is all wavy!  I tried applying a little heat after the paint was fully dried.  the waviness disappeared for a bit, then came right back as the polyester cooled.


The waves are perpendicular to the keel running pretty much the length of the boat.


Any suggestions or ideas?


Thanks all!
